Bush Bash!

Australian Animals

Where is Dingo dashing off to? Come and join the Bush Bash to find out.

Dingo is headed somewhere looking excited, and the other animals want to know where he's going. Dingo won't say, so the others follow along in hot pursuit - two nosy numbats, three flying frogs, four burrowing bilbies … The animals are in for a surprise when Dingo's final destination is revealed on the last page.

There are animals to count, things to find and a surprise on the last page!
